Skunkdog by Emily Jenkins - ESSENTIAL

Jenkins, Emily Skunkdog, illustrated by Pierre Pratt. Farrar, Strauss and Giroux (Macmillan), 2008. PICTURE BOOK.


Dumpling, a.k.a. Skunkdog, is a delightful pet, but her nose isn’t as great as she is; she can’t smell anything. Dumpling and her family move to a new place where she meets a new black and white friend that she is determined to keep.

The illustrations are so adorable that I wanted to have Dumpling and the skunk for my own regardless of the smell. Loneliness and acceptance are subjects that most kids understand. It begs to be read to someone!
